Admissions

The school conducts admission assessments of all applicants in order to establish their aptitude level and subject knowledge of English, Math and Science and to ensure that the child is able to access the school’s programme within the levels of support that are available. The admission syllabus may be referred from the school website.

Admission Policy

City American School – Ajman is an international educational institution open to students of all nationalities who are able to access a well-rounded education offered in English as the language of instruction. CAS welcomes students of a wide range of abilities. Our admissions philosophy is by nature inclusive, but contained by boundaries set by the child’s ability to access the curriculum in English and the school’s ability to support students who have learning difficulties or special educational needs. City American School provides a high quality, creative and challenging international education, based on the American Curriculum. We foster within each student, staff member and community member an enduring passion for learning and empowering each individual to become a caring global citizen.
